This week, I toast the innovators and pioneers in the food world who not only serve amazing food and drinks but also serve their community. Food is such a great thing to rally around, isn’t it? We all have to eat, and we all want to have a good time with the people we care about the most. So what better way to celebrate and serve a cause we care about than with a good meal in an even better place? That is exactly what my guest, Moe Girton, did with her Gossip Grill.

“My ‘secret sauce’ is respect. I treat my employees like gold, and they treat the guests like gold.” - Moe Girton Click To Tweet

Moe came to San Diego in 1999 and started her career in the Restaurant/Bar industry in 2000.  She started working with Mo’s Universe in 2004 in which she quickly became known for her cocktails, flair and her ability to connect. Moe Girton opened Gossip Grill in 2009 with fellow business owners from Mo’s Universe. Gossip Grill would become California’s top Women’s bar and one of the best in the country.  With her staff, she has created a safe space for Women and the LGBTQ community.  Gossip has become not only a bar/restaurant/ nightclub but also a community center of sorts.  They offer their space and passion to raise much-needed funds for local non-profit groups supporting Women’s needs and the LGBTQ community.  Moe has always taken a stand for equality and LGBTQ rights and continues to fight for her community.
